From the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks - Spring Turkey Season Opens March 15

Mississippi gobbler courtesy of Mississippi's Wild Turkey Program Jackson, Mississippi - It is time for Mississippi's turkey hunters to practice their yelping and dust off their shotgun.  The spring turkey season opens March 15 and ends May 1.  Opportunities to pursue spring gobblers are plentiful across the Magnolia State, and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) anticipates that hunting success will be good in 2014.  "Jake sightings were up across most areas of the state last spring as a result of a very good hatch during the summer of 2012," says Dave Godwin, MDWFP Wild Turkey Program Coordinator. "This should mean good numbers of two-year-old gobblers, good gobbling activity, and solid success rates," says Godwin. "We do seem to be off to another relatively late spring, so peak gobbling activity might occur later in the season once the weather warms up."
